Thread Name: Help Choose 20 Most Popular Irish Songs
Subject: help choose folksongs popular in Ireland
Hi There once again.

Thank you all for your comments from my last request. My apologies for not relating what exactly i was looking for.

I am looking for help in choosing folksongs that are popular in Ireland. The songs that i am looking for are folksongs that have been Traditionally Arranged by some of Ireland's finest musicians including The Dubliners, The Clancy's, Christy Moore, The Wolfe Tones, Pual Brady, Donal Lunny etc etc. Once the folk song is popular in Ireland that will be fine even if the song might be an English, Scottish or Welsh origin is not an issue with me.

The reason why i am looking for the songs is because i am compiling a CD for some friends of mine and i want to give them the finest selection.

Please offer your suggestions.

Thanking you all once again, slainte, Ray.
